To get advice, share their stories, or dedicate a song, everyone knows they can pick up the phone and call Lydia’s Love 98. The mastermind behind the microphone is middle-aged Lydia, who runs this nightly radio talk show with relentless devotion to guiding her listeners through “the maze of human existence.” One night, however, a desperate caller forces the music to stop. Over the course of one hour-and-a-half show, Lydia’s Love 98 explores the lives of seven characters faced with navigating their own lives, on and off the air. Lydia and her listeners are forced to reexamine clichés, question their own culpability, and discover what it means to really listen. Lydia’s Love 98 is a funny, tragic, and intimate look at a late-night radio show and the strangers it unites.
